Jacksonville, Ark. (The Weekly Vice) - Courtney Drager, a 21-year-old Arkansas woman was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly put her baby into a choke hold and then swung the infant around like a rag doll.
According to the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched Tuesday night after Drager's mother called 911 to report that her daughter was abusing her infant child.
During the call, 911 operators could hear a woman screaming and yelling in the background. The sound of a crying baby could also be heard.
Drager's mother told deputies that she arrived home from the store to find Drager holding the child by the neck in a choke hold. Drager then swung the infant around by the child's limbs.
Drager's mother wrestled the baby away from the out-of-control mother. She then fled to a bedroom with the child, locked the door and called 911.
Arriving deputies interviewed Drager who stated that she "just wanted to take her son and leave" and didn't want anyone to tell her how to care for her child. She stated that she was a "new" mother and would make mistakes.
Paramedics found large red marks on the child's back, wrist and forearm.
Drager was booked into the Pulaski County Jail and charged with second-degree domestic battery.
